Trying to rediect home page built with Frontpage
I built a client a new website and want to only redirect the home page of the existing website to the new in order to transfer incoming links and visitors looking to find them. Plus, this is a campground under new management which means new owners, names and website address. Of course, this is happening at the beginning of the camping season.
The site was built with front page. I cannot use a .htaccess file to do it. A 301 redirect at domain level would move the entire site and they want to keep one page of functions from the old website live for one year.
I was thinking of trying to place a ode snippet like <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html"> in the head of the main page, but of course there is no index page since it front page. Grrr…
Any suggestions before I recommend just scrapping the old site and just redirect the whole thing?
I think you should be able to use .htaccess to redirect all pages except the one they want to keep, using RewriteCond.
